Top 10 Cutest Chefs in Manila
Who takes the cake as the cutest chefs in town? We list our Top 10.
Published on: Sep 15, 2010 - 12:05pm


When it comes to picking out guys who stand out from the pack, those who know their way around the kitchen get major points. Thus, some may say that cute chefs have an unfair advantage. lists 10 men who heat up the kitchen in more ways than one. (Spotted other cute chefs?  Please let us know! Manila can never have enough of them!)

10. Chef Rolando Laudico

Culinary bio: Educated at the Culinary Institute of America, he worked in France and Australia before setting up a catering business and eventually opened Bistro Filipino in 2006.

Where to spot him: Working his magic on the dishes at Chef Laudico Bistro Filipino.

Chef Laudico does not have a clue whom he appeals to the most, but says, "A lot of little kids seem to like me a lot, which is cool. I love kids." The long-haired chef who walks around with a "rocker dude" vibe is responsible for Bistro Filipino's much-talked about Pinoy food. He thinks though that, "being a chef is not about looks. You can just get any handsome guy and dress him up with a chef jacket and call him a chef [but] you have to earn the title through years of hard work and dedication."

Much like how he runs his restaurant, Chef Laudico does not do things half-way. On his first date with wife Chef Jaqueline, he took her to Farmer's Market, brought a lot of ingredients and prepared a feast with over 5 dishes from scratch. "I still love cooking for her up to this day," he shares. Now, that is a keeper.

9. Chef Sau del Rosario

Culinary Bio: Trained at the Culinary Institute of America, Chef Sau has helped open hotel restaurants in Singapore, Shanghai and France; Chef Sau is also a former chef at the EDSA Shangri-la Hotel, New World Hotel, and the Manila Peninsula; The former chef of Museum Café and Chelsea, Chef Sau now creates the dishes at Le Bistro Vert in Makati.

Where to spot him: Cooking up dishes at Le Bistro Vert in Makati.

One of the most popular chefs in Manila, Chef Sau has gone beyond the kitchen and made local television his playground: he was an endorser for the Selecta Gold Series and is currently a judge on QTV 11's "Kitchen Battles" hosted by Issa Litton. The superbly toned Chef Sau, described to have glints of mischief in his eyes, feels that his appeal knows no age nor gender. "I think I appeal mostly to younger women and matronas, and men! Just look at my Facebook friends," he says.

For Chef Sau, "a healthy lifestyle, exercise, organic food, sex, and a lot of ice cream" keep him fit. But it seems that cooking for loved ones make him most happy. Says Chef Sau, "I [once] cooked for my ex and we shared a meal on the rooftop of our building in Paris. I served. I also washed the dishes!"

    I saw this chef and talked to him personally. He works at plantation bay resort and spa that time he was still 26. he is good looking and cute. I saw him with his team at their station at kadaugan sa mactan in cebu city. hope to see him next festival. rnrnOh yeah, btw his name is Chef Rob Boiser. He is pure filipino. Mom is Spanish. Dad has german-chinese-filipino blood. rnrn:)

    I think chef rob deserves to be number one in both cuteness and skill. I've been to his restaurant 3 times and have also been to all the other restaurants listed. I can honestly say that his is the best by far. It's modern, inventive and the service and ambiance are great. I think it's unfair to bad mouth people based on their looks or "fats" (chef UNO). Let's all be more mature, respectful and classy. I wonder how YOU look.
    Sep 20 2010 @ 11:25pm     Reply  
  • @chef uno & on the list
    Chef rob has a very popular restaurant, an expansive culinary school and a show that doesn't produce the awful food I see elsewhere. rnrnYou guys compare to any of his accomplishments, even one :) didn't think sornrnO and by the way, he can gain weight (ah hello chef) or lose it but he's guapo either way :)

  • @ chef uno
    Hey chef uno. I'm rob's friend and check these facts about him: he's the only chef who has a respected culinary school, a restaurant that puts our local food scene on the international map (which are only a few), and he's the only chef on tv that makes real food no ajinomoto tuna shit!rnrnYou don't like the guy co your a lousy chef. What's ur restaurant? What's ur food business? Do chefs respect you? rnrn... I Didnt think so loser! I dare you to man up!

'People these men are appreciated for there accomplishments first and looks second.' rnrnIt should be THEIR not THERE.rnrn3. Lastly, stating the obvious once again, it is NEVER classy to call yourself 'classy babe'.

    People who use words like chef chefan probably think Fridays is fine dining. People these men are appreciated for there accomplishments first and looks second. In my opinion top 4 should be rn5 sau - love his restaurants I don't know about his showrn4 laudico - brave enough to translate our cuisine to his vision rn3. Tony boy - amazingly consistent place not bad for an older guyrn2. Carlo miguel - awesome personal achievement rn1. Rob - cute yes, the restaurant amazingrnrnAll you bad mothers are never ever getting on any list worth talking about because you are the reason this country is so babaw and negative.

  • Why?
    Why must everything turn into a Face to Face-like encounter? Can't some people disagree or express their opinion without being so crass? (I shudder to think what the answers to this question may be, even if it's rhetorical.) It's just weird to read one discussion thread after another that could double as a Face to Face transcript. Unless, of course, that's the crowd the site wants to attract. If so, I stand corrected and let the mud keep flying.

    Lighten up guys! Spot's Cutest Lists (Cutest Politicians, Cutest Newsmen and Women, Cutest Cabinet Members, Cutest Dog, Cutest Musicians, Cutest Athletes, ano pa ba) are obviously popular that's why they keep doing it. Admit it, eye candy sells, why not just enjoy. It's not like they stopped featuring places to eat or go to naman noh.

    chef laudico is the most over rated chef i know. he butchered filipino cuisine. chef sau maybe not cute but definitely hot! he's got 6 packs (abs) and a hot bf, chef jeremy favia! chef roby maybe the cutest of them all but htis poor "chef" cannot cook. there.

    @marj rnrnI think the chefs have done the time. I just think this article needed reframing. rnrnDear Spot.phrnSeriously. Do us all a favor and tell us where to eat or what trends to watch out for. I read you fairly frequently and this is not what you're about.

    This is just so "JUVENILE"....rnrnI hope this doesnt affect how we look and admire the talents of these great professionals...being cute is not the reason why they are loved and successful in their careers. stop being sexist too by saying that cute is just for "real men"...go check your Thesaurus!

    Marj naman in fairness i know these chefs and they have culinary degrees and/or many years of experience. I don't think any of these chefs just attended a 2-6 month course and voila.

  • Marj
    @ marianne, the disappointment is mine too. There is no relationship between looks and the quality of their products. Besides, their credentials are highly questionable. They attend a 2-6 month course abroad and voila, that's their credentials. The test of the pudding is in the eating.

    I think only those in the food industry can appreciate the appeal of these guys. They're also all talented and accomplished which was probably also a basis for choosing them. To the layman seeing their photos for the first time and comparing their looks to models and actors, of course they can't compare! I personally find Chef HIm, Tonyboy and Laudico attractive, but I guess you need to meet them and talk to them. Especially after you taste their food!

    Do you know guys the meaning of "CUTE"? Si Chef Rob lang ang ok, puwede na rin si Chef Tristan pero kaumay na rin kasi siya. Grabe, gurang na yung iba, CUTE ba mga yun??? TSK.

    I don't understand the slant or intention behind this article. Are you trying to establish how looks tie into the cheffing career? And if so, why?rnrnYou've highlighted some talented chefs, some of our best, in fact. Wouldn't highlighting their restaurants and their food be enough? rnrnDisappointed. rn
